greatest test of your faith won't come from Bible-quoting Protestants
or polite young Mormons on bicycles! No, your greatest test will be
whether you will trust God when you suffer, or whether you will, in
the words of Job's wife, "curse God and die."
The Cross of Christ and Its Meaning for You, Dom Hubert van
Zeller helps you prepare now for all your sufferings by enabling you
to see them with the eyes of the Spirit.
Zeller, the wise author of Holiness for Housewives, maintains
that you can understand the mystery of suffering only by means of the
Passion of Christ. In this book, he explores the fourteen Stations of
the Cross, plumbing the inner meanings of each in order to reveal why
there has to be pain, and what you should do (and should not do)
his explorations of the Stations, van Zeller finds a great deal to
help you in dark times. He reminds you that suffering, properly
understood, cannot and should not extinguish happiness, and shows you
how to accept your crosses with love. He reveals how you can learn
from Christ Himself to turn your failures into victories, and to
alleviate others' suffering by imitating Mary's compassion.
all, van Zeller shows you that suffering has a purpose, and he uses
Christ's Passion to sharpen your vision of life's meaning. With help
from this perceptive book, you'll learn how not to grow disheartened
or to give in to discouragement, but to see your crosses for what
they are, and to bear them with perseverance.
your sufferings a path to salvation as Dom van Zeller shows you:
